“The Board of Education for the Becker Public Schools screened four strong finalists for the position of Superintendent on February 20. The group was assisted by community, staff and administrative teams who helped provide feedback on all of the candidates. Following a thorough discussion of these candidates, the Board unanimously agreed to engage in contract talks with Jeremy Schmidt who has enthusiastically accepted the offer to enter negotiations with the Board.
